I fasted for Yom Kippur yesterday... ...and it's weird, but I feel more energized today. I've heard research that the occasional fast can actually be good for you - I wonder if this is true? Anyway, I've started Week 3 of P90X, and I'... Read more

And once again am hitting my stride. :) P90X is really an amazing program - I will never stop singing its praises! I think I'll be road-ready by October 1 - and I'm going to start running again, REALLY SUPER OMG SLOWPOKE SLOWLY. If I rei... Read more

Hey, so... Look!
242508 I made this, and it's really, REALLY good - and super good for you! I'm not sure Andrew liked it very much, but then again, he... Read more

Not going to let it stop me, though - worked out last night (did surprisingly well, and felt pretty good after), and I intend to try plyo tonight. Come on, Theraflu, work your magic...... Read more

Week 2!

Decided against a workout last night and instead just did an hour of lovely stretching, thanks to Tony Horton. Taking a rest day is making all the difference for me... I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to tackle chest & back today! ... Read more

Rest day... aaaaaahhhh.

Going to do the stretch program at lunch in my boss's office (he's gone today, woot!), and then maybe a very light workout when I get home from work. I'm still afraid I'm going to reinjure myself, so I'm going to take my prescribed rest days ve... Read more

Almost done with week 1 of P90X: Round Three! I'll tell you what, it's good to be back in the routine. There's something very... I don't know - comforting? - about something you do every single day that's good for you, even if you don't necess... Read more

For those of you that don't know me, in a competition, I am formidable. Chances are, if you happen to be in the same competition with me, you're going to say, "whoa, she's pretty intense." You would be 100% correct. I don't do it to b... Read more

Quickie drive-by! Had a REALLY challenging day yesterday... it's autumn, and that means apple cider doughnuts make a regular appearance around here. Someone brought some in yesterday, and I really had a hard time resisting them - but I did... Read more

I promise you, I'm still here, and I'm still doing well. :) As I'd posted before, I was dealing with some injury - and I am mostly healed. Soon as my left ankle healed up (no pain anymore, yay!), my RIGHT achilles started firing up for re... Read more

Back in the saddle (almost)

Ahh, kenpo. How Iíve missed you. I had to modify some of the jumpy moves because the ankleís still a little wonky, but like Tony says: an injury or a disability is not an excuse to sit around and do nothing, itís an opportunity to be creati... Read more

That is the sound that a frustrated athlete makes. >:( Tried to do plyo last night... and my ankle pretty much went "LOL NOPE!!!" and I was flat on my butt for the rest of the night. Dammit anyway. But, I'll not be kept down! To... Read more

Hey guys, it's working!

I am referencing the healing mojo/vibes/etc. :) I feel pretty good today! Ankle's still a bit stiff, but I think I'm on the downslope of the hill now. I had a workout last night - chest, shoulders & triceps - and my ankle started out bei... Read more

INJURY... bah!!!

So, about a week ago, I had a really great run... was feeling terrific about myself... right? I rolled my ankle during that run, but didn't think anything of it because it didn't hurt... AT THE TIME. I had to deviate off the sidewalk becau... Read more

Thank you, sir, may I have another?

LOL. That's how I was feeling after plyometrics tonight. I did better tonight than I ever have before, and that feels pretty darn good. I've come a long way from way back in March, when I nearly passed out doing plyo! The other great... Read more
